What the brewers say

“More than 75 percent of the hops were added after the boil, preserving the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot, and pine as much as possible. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness and a refreshingly light malt character, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light citrus (orange, lemon, lime) with some tropical fruit (pineapple and guava), slight grassy notes, a bit of earthy dankness, and some bready malt character beneath.”

Flavor: “Light bodied without being thin. Light sweet malt character up front, followed by a grassy hops notes with a hint of lemon, but not a lot of complex hops flavor. A bit off balanced—bitter but not much malt body to go with it. Bitter on the finish, but well balanced.”

Overall: “A good, easy-drinking IPA. Nothing is overwhelming, which—given the simple body—lets the subtle characters come out on the finish. It’s smooth and covers all the bases.”
